." >> this is on foreign policy. the american ambassador to libya was recently killed. syria has defended -- descended into civil war. united states sends hundreds of billions of dollars in federal aid to countries around the world democracies and dictators. what should be the basic guiding principles of american foreign policies? >> fundamentally, i would have to say that freedom is something we need to encourage across the world. that me talk about christopher's stevens and what happened. his death along with three others is a tragedy, and that has been in a lot of people's thoughts and prayers. we need to get to the bottom of that, and i'm not here to speculate on who did what, but we need to find out and the american people need to know. i hope it will be transparent and can be clear so, two things will come out of it. people need to be held accountable, but also we can learn from that, so in the future if we have diplomats abroad we can ensure we are protecting them. as it relates to other countries, and there is turmoil in the middle east, from my perspective, that is one thing that we have don
night, governor romney agreed with the president. but this is a different set of foreign policy views that he had earlier in the campaign. >> and george, that had been an argument that the obama people had kind of shied away from earlier in the campaign. >> well, that's right. right now, that charge is really an accusation that romney can live with. which is don't believe him, as andrew said, because you might like him. i think people say, look, our last impression of him, this is your closing argument, that this is someone that we can live with. i think the obama attack is buttressing the attack. >> agree? >> i don't agree. if you're paying attention to the policy, it has to worry you that he has bunch of stated policies in his platform, if you start unpacking them, there aren't any details and what he's saying now is totally different than what he is saying now. >> don't people normally state that. >> i don't think he flipped to a policy. i think he's basically just, he's got a thing in writing that my policy is "a." you say "a" is my policy, but it's not. >> but the problem is oba
administration to focus its foreign policy efforts on asia. former ambassador to iraq, chris hill said political gridlock is hurting u.s. foreign policy object is an asian policy is a good place to rebuild bipartisanship. the discussion is just under two hours. >> thank you all for being here this afternoon and welcome to gaston on georgetown company country university. we've kind for a special conversation. a conversation between top diplomats past and present, each of whom has played a significant role over the past two decades with representatives from the administration of george h.w. bush to the current administration of barack obama, our guest speakers today offered their expertise and experience as they look back on their years of service and look forward to the future of u.s.-asia relations. we offer my gratitude to georgetown's asian studies program, our school foreign service and the korea economic institute who have partnered to bring together some of our country's most respected minds on foreign policy and asia. we are deeply grateful to dr. dr. victor cha and director of asian studi
that's going to go back to the same policies that got us into this mess. foreign policy, if you watched the last debate. terrifying if you're a woman. terrifying if you're a gay person. terrifying if -- literally anybody but the top 1%, isn't it? >> it is remarkable to me. it is also remarkable to me that basically other than having a good first debate, romney has done what he's done and been pretty bad since this whole thing started. it is shocking. i still think obama's -- it reminds me of when i was a kid. every time there was a presidential election, i thought i would have to move to canada. my mother would say if nixon gets elected we're moving to canada. every time an election would approach, i would get worried about missing my friends because we were going to move to canada. i'm hoping i won't have to move to canada. >> stephanie: you're probably already packed. you're planning on packing for canada for years. >> i'm looking outside the window of my new york apartment looking at a normal fall day and wa
in place to reduce carbon emissions over time. we don't have absolute certainly in foreign policy and the economy, we can't wait around until we know for certain we need to take steps now. >> rose: that's what the mayorpoind to, carbon attacks or maybe able to measure carbon standards. where is there a model, steve, of a city in the world that's responded to the challenge? >> well, it depends on how much wealth you have. i mean holland, the netherlands is essentially an engineered country that if in the absence of its wealth and its willingness to spend that wealth on engineering the seas to keep low lands occupied by dutch people, it wouldn't be a viable country. the question for t ited states is because we are a coastal country with, as one of the other guests said 4 million people at least at high tide never mind back up a bit to account for three feet of higher seas in 30 or 40 years. this is not a problem that can be solved by engineering alone. not on a national scale. manhattan could solve it by engineering is alone, at least for half a century but the whole count c. e que
, in the final week of this campaign, not only been in a day abandoning their position on foreign policy, trying to wiggle out of their position on women. now they are running away from the bet -- very fundamental ten et upon which this new republican tea party is based. what do they say? i mean this sincerely. it is based on two things -- one, the tax structure continuing to give massive tax cuts to the very wealthy. the five dar trillion tax plan that governor romney ran on a right here in the primaries in florida, with all those republicans, that $5 trillion plan, $1.6 trillion of which goes to making a minimum of $1 million. all this sudden it is gone. as my fourth granddaughter with said, did caspar the friendly ghost steal it? where did it go? it was a center element of the organizing principle, but because outside groups pointed out that the plan would raise middle-class taxes by $2,000 a year, all of a sudden it has vanished. all of a sudden, romney says, do not worry, it will not cost anything. we will eliminate the polls for the wealthy. ladies and gentlemen, for people making over $1
amnesia, or romnesia, however you want to speak about it, when you talk about foreign policy and they forget that it was president bush. that got us into the worst foreign policy debacle in the history of this country. we will be digging ourselves out of the hole in iraq for a long, long time. because of failed intelligence and a variety of other thins. these guys remained -- remind me of a sports announcer. you watch the beginning of the football team and the analyst says, this team is going to win for sure, this is going to be a blowout. then the game is over and they were wrong they don't mention that they were wrong and made bad predicts. that's what these guys remind me of. you guys cause halved of these problems, 3/4 of these problems and you turn around and try to blame obama. but the american people are smart they pay close attention when the time is right. that's why you see obama doing well in places like ohio. >> again, host: again, we're being joined by tim ryan, a democrat from youngstown, ohio, via skype. we go to a caller from ohio. good morning, john. caller:
this situation. host: a couple issues there. foreign policy, talk about how it is playing in ohio. guest: first sheet mentioned the issue of jobs and the economy -- she mentioned the issue of jobs and the economy. mitt romney has made a strong case about laying out why we don't have a better economy. why he would lead the country in a direction toward creating more jobs. i think that has been the strength toward his campaign. when you get into the military, that has been an issue. it was a much bigger issue in 20008. getting into the benghazi issue talking about the attack in libya has not played much in the campaign. it has been more of an issue that the pundits have battled around but you will not hear that on the campaign trail from voters and elsewhere. host: tennessee on the independent line. go ahead. caller: hi. i've been watching this for the last couple days and i wonder -- he is really trying to help the middle class. i have a business in tennessee. i think he is a good president. mitt romney already has everything. he does not know what it feels to be black or white in the middle cla
or positions. the last foreign policy debate, i was not sure whether president goingor romney was to endorse president obama. we roman catholic say that boy had an epiphany. governor romney went from sank it was a mistake we did not leave 30,000 troops in iraq. he sounded like he was against the war from the beginning. i was amazed. he went from labeling russia last year as the single greatest geopolitical threats to the united states and even opposed the new gun control treaty that every republican said to push that, he said he would not have supported it. all of a sudden we can work with russia. you know that. did you hear that? i thought, turn that tv up. 10putin's best friend. -- putin's best friend. when as in the second debate what would you commit to, he said it depends. with these guys it depends on everything. it always depends who they're talking to or where they are. it depends on what the vote is. pends.ays defe i am from pennsylvania. the grandfather always said be ists. of the convert tes one issue they cannot bring themselves to say they now agreed with us on was issues relati
the president is doing a lot to help that matter. with respect to foreign policy, i think that the record has been clear. i know that this is a desperate act of a desperate campaign in the closing days to try to say that the president lied to the american people. i think that's simply not true and i think that it is offensive to the good men and women who are neither democrats nor republicans but get up every day and work for the national security of this country. host: finally, what are you going to be watching for in your state on election night? guest: well, i think in wisconsin it's a unique blend. you have to turn out your base. democratic voters but you also need to make sure that you're getting the votes of swing voters, whether it's in the milwaukee suburbses or green bay area, the lacrosse market. we want to see big turnouts in the milwaukee and madison area. and then we just need to hold our own in markets like green bay where it's a very competitive swing market. you know, wisconsin's -- i love wisconsin. it's a fabulous state to watch politics in. it can be kind of a tough state p
debate, which was about foreign policy, but in many ways that debate was about being the commander in chief and being able to lead, and i think that's what we'll see president obama try to portrait over the next 48 hours, and i think governor romney is going to try to do that as well. >> all right. we'll be watching closely. thank you, mark. good to see you. >>> live pictures from atlantic city, new jersey, where hurricane sandy is pounding the coast. the eye of the storm expected to make landfall there between 8:00 and midnight eastern tonight. as we mentioned, president obama, he is cancelling campaign events to stand by those being hit by this beast of a storm. >> my message to the governors as well as to the mayors is anything they need, we will be there. >> we'll hear the president live later in the hour about 20 minutes or so is when he is scheduled to speak from the white house. and some difficult ones. but, through it all, we've persevered, supporting some of the biggest ideas in modern history. so why should our anniversary matter to you? because for 200 years, we've been
of atrocities the key focus of his administration's foreign policy. this initiative aimed at civilians and holding perpetrators of atrocities accountable. the focus of this initiative is the area and libya. the other initiative come in the second initiative is the open government or airship, which announced in september 2011 but exacerbated in italy. it was launched by governments and ninth society organizations and has grown to include 57 -- now 57 countries and over 300 commitment organizations reaching more than 2 billion teeple, all in just one year. some other countries have already joined her in the process of joining, which i think is a good thing for many arab countries. the partnership is an international airport to improve government performance, encourage participation and enhanced government participation to people and governments throughout the globe. the urban governor partnership of transparency, citizen, protection and accountability. the highlight of the policy of the united state is the memorandum of understanding for corporations that were assigned to the arab league
romney's foreign policy and i think it's spore addic that really matters. i see this as an opportunity for the romney campaign to try to distract from what is a very serious endorcement from general powell. >> let's get to another topic here, karen. an article in the "washington post." it's a new one that argues there is a high likelihood president obama could win the electoral vote but not the popular vote, which would be a first for an incumbent. could we survive the hyperpartisanship that that scenario would likely cause? >> i don't know, alex. i mean, i really hope that doesn't happen for so many reasons. i think it would be terrible for the country for so many reasons. we've already become so partisan. i'm actually have to tell you they was skeptical of some of the modelling that we've seen going on. i think a lot of the polls and a lot of the modelling has underestimated the number of latinos and african-american voters. we have 8 million more latino voters, for example, voting in 2012 than we did in 2008. most of the polling models i've seen don't account for those kinds of demo
or steel aspects from it -- emulate their engagement policy or steal aspects from a? >> there is not a perfect model. look at some of the work that is happening in india, for example, to try to attract foreign investment and entrepreneurs. i'm not sure -- it is still very early in terms of the results of their. for the last three decades, the u.s. has had, historically, a very healthy immigration policy, but in the last decade or so we have kind of gone the other way. when you think about it, the number of immigrants that have come in and built amazing companies and created jobs in the hundreds of thousands, we cannot be looking at other markets because there is not a perfect model, but we need to look back of the 1970's in the u.s. as an historical model. we have a lot of immigration. a lot of people came in with science, technology, engineering, mathematics backgrounds. if you look at silicon valley, you see the results. >> i spent seven years of my life painfully on the commission of immigration reform which was chaired by barbara jordan and 1990's. i think the wa
's foreign policy. he said there's no obama doctrine that i know of. i don't know that anybody has enunciated a world view the way that henriy kissen jer did in hs day or even james baker. there's no great love there for the president of the united states. but clearly he has endorsed him. >> yes. and also he focused on climate change which i thought was interesting. >> right. >> it comes after this huge storm and there's a big fight going on right now. and the scientists are out there saying, listen, this is climate change these sort of huge storms we haven't seen the likes of before. this is the result of climate change. and this is clearly a major who believes that his city was hard hit as a result of climate change. and so, you know, again not surprising the timing is sort of interesting to me. but it does fit in with what's been going on in new york and that he spent so much time talking about climate change. and that was what he was actually criticizing mitt romney for was romney's -- what he sees as romney's flip-flop on things like coarbon emissions. >> obviously critically important i
obama is, you know, he's the obviously the first and only black president he's policy an outsider in other really significant ways. he has a unusual name. he was largely grew up in foreign country. he, you know, he worked adds a community organizer with very poor people in a housing project until the south side of chicago. these are things that are extremely suspicious to lots of people in our country. and instead of talking about it doctor directly they use the other terms to code him to describe him as outer calling him a socialist. calling him a communist. these things that manifestly have nothing do with who he is. interest thing about barack obama, if you read his awe disty of hope, his memoir, if you look at the great speech the greatest moment it's about conciliation. this is what how he sees himself. this is an he did want to be a great president. he wanted to bid for greatness and by getting a grand bar iman. doing something bipartisan. he is born conciliators. that's who he is. the sad thing at the end of the day, the tragedy of barack obama is that he was a man who was
